Requirements[edit]

  • Node.js 6 or higher (https://nodejs.org) (Avoid your distro repo, they are generally outdated, download directly or use nodesource repos instead)
  • Python 2 (for node-gyp, Python 3 is not supported [2])
  • Debian will need the 'build-essential' package for compilers and make etc...

Installation[edit]

In an empty folder:

npm install -g screeps
screeps init
screeps start

That will start a server on port 21025 by default. To connect to CLI, in another shell run

screeps cli
